Speaking of Boba Fett…

I know I know, why go there? Because I like it, deal with it. What I always hear about Boba Fett is how cool and badass he is …or how much of greedy basterd he’s proved to be. All true but what most intrigues me about this guy is that just like our unfortunate Chosen One; he was screwed more by the decidedly Good Guys. Boba Fett early life was anything but sweet, but he did have a father who loved him.

Who then gets killed, while he watch

“Jango is a villain, he had it coming!!” … sure, but,

That doesn’t erase nor excuse this. He was someone’s father too. This kid’s father. The most heart breaking thing here is that this kid was never given actual chance, as TCW unfolds.

I truly believed Windu was showing compassion here. But boy was I a fool. Should’ve paid attentions to what’s been said:

Boba Fett: I see now I’ve done terrible things. But you started when you murdered my father! I’ll never forgive you.

Mace Windu: Hm… Well, you’re going to have to. Take him away.

Boba wasn’t that far gone at this point. With the right care someone would have given this kid the right treatment that would’ve saved his future… but ofc that wasn’t the case.

Yeah, this kid is going to turn out just fine.

Mace is a very good Jedi you know that?

He “let go” with whatever minor guilt he had for this kid and left him in jail to get more fucked up.

Jedi logic, always the greatest.

*sigh*

I mean, before Magnus realized Alec wasn't out, he hit on him pretty hard and obvious for everyone around. But (speaking from personal experience) being closeted, doesn't necessarily equal having no experience at all, so I'm not surprised Magnus didn't assume, Alec never had a relationship. I think a lot of us dated or were intimate with ppl in secret before coming out, it's not uncommon at all. Like Magnus said, Shadowhunters are a don't ask/don't tell culture, and even offered to date secretly

Yeah, many of us date on the down-low, etc., so I don’t see it as an odd assumption for Magnus to have made. Though the more I look at the scene, the more I do think the writers went a little out of their way to make it really clear. And I don’t know if it’s because of the amount of people up to even last week who kept looking for reasons as to why Alec should’ve had more experience in the past, and by reasons I mean they all basically amounted to “Alec doesn’t look/act like a virgin” which was frankly terrible. Like, what does one look or act like first of all, and that’s not even getting into the fact that it’s a social construct, anyway. We all have different levels of intimacy that ultimately counts as a sexual experience for us; this isn’t something other people should decide for you.

But regardless, the underlining of Alec as a man with little relationship experience combined with his being treated without the shy blushing trope or whatever was really, really needed, especially because it’s exactly this trope that caused people to accuse Magnus of being “predatory” in turn, as if Alec isn’t a perfectly grown ass adult who can take some sexual innuendo or blatant flirting. Or to write Magnus as a passive submissive boyfriend because, you know, Alec is delicate apparently or whatever. The trope is harmful all around and it really needed to be stopped and after what this episode established I hope I never encounter it again.
